OnlineThis event has finished
As advances in artificial intelligence, video creation, and online trolling continue, deepfakes pose not only a real threat to society – they also threaten to take voter manipulation to unprecedented new heights.
Nina Schick is a deepfake investigative journalist who specialises in how technology is reshaping politics in the 21st century. In her recent book “Deepfakes – The Coming Infocalypse”, she reveals alarming examples of deepfakery and explains the dangerous political consequences of the “Infocalypse”, both in terms of national security and what it means for public trust in politics.
Join us on Thursday 28 January 11.00-11.45 GMT, where Faculty’s Lead Data Scientist Dr Alex Adam will (virtually) sit alongside Nina Schick in this fireside chat. They’ll take a “deep dive” into “deepfakes”, outlining the future of the technology and how it is being used in the world we live in today.
